    the new Gardener Brushes have 4 jet holes now so they are easy to switch between the two

    Tried fans and didn't like them, used far more water and took them out after a day.

    Yeah you want the Gardiner brushes with push-fit connectors then you just swap the pole hose between desired jets.

    I have the unger nLite one with 4 holes but what I mean is there is only 1 hose coming from the water
    So how can I just switch between the two quickly?? Like unplug from the pencil jets and plug into fan jets?? Is there some sort of fitting I can get?

    Difference is pencil jets spray the water out erm, like when you do a wee and fan jets send out a fine mist.
